Seamless solutions for beaming results from plates, gels and arrays While many automation solution providers have done a fine job at developing creative solutions, few have ever addressed a key aspect of data management: sample traceability.
I realized that workflow analysis, as practiced by many customers and consultants, is much like a Porsche careening down Hyde Street like a maddened rodeo bull. Either the effort is flying along, devouring up project dollars with no real objectives in mind, or it is suddenly braked to a trudge, plodding along, and dripping out the odd diagram here and there, only to be scrutinized for the most insignificant detail and then rewritten.
Desktop Integration for Microsoft Office and Other Applications using a Knowledge Engineering System Kristi M. McKiney, Sr. Technical Writer, Scientific Software, Inc. Thinking outside the box is the way new products and ideas are generated, but thinking inside the box may be what is needed in today's regulated laboratories in order to comply with the Food and Drug Administration's regulations for good laboratory practice,
What can Knowledge Engineering do for you? No matter what your industry-pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical, chemical, environmental, petrochemical-the ability to own intellectual property is more than simply desirable-it's imperative.
Robert Fee, Managing Editor Drawn by the chance to hear great jazz, the lure of Bourbon Street,
New Palm and Pocket PC utilities useful in the laboratory Antony Williams, Ph.D. While there are many forms of computer which can be found in your hand, or on your lap, certainly the most prevalent forms of handheld computer are the Personal Digital Assistant (PDAs based on the Palm operating system) and, increasingly, the Pocket PC.
You don't have to be a programmer to be able to find uses for this program John R. Joyce, Ph.D. Anyone who has really worked with Unix knows what grep is. For those who haven't had the privilege, grep is a utility that allows you to search and manipulate files, both text and binary.
A lack of perspective can rain problems on a major, multi-site LIMS project Randy C. Hice Twice this year, we heard from huge companies in the midst of "global" LIMS initiatives, and suddenly woke up to realize that buzzards were circling, and there was no plan in site to move forward. It seemed like a good idea, the project planning people thought. But, in fact, they had never actually implemented LIMS at more than one site before.
It's simple brilliance Visionary Reflections As the current wave of robotics approaches plateau levels, its impact on improving HTS and other drug discovery, biotech and biopharma processes, rapidly declines.
The ProteomeLab XL-A,XL-I for protein characterization in solution provides measurement of protein heterogeneity, stoichiometry, interacting/self-associating systems and molecular conformation studies for improved lead optimization.
The new GageWay Series connects multiple devices to a single RS232 or network port. The user is able to format the output data in the manner needed for a particular application.
